For over 30 years I worked in the National Health Service and one of the things that really struck me was how, apart from my obstetrics placement and even during some of that, I was primarily working with people who were already ill and working to resolve that rather than working to keep people healthy in the first place.
One of the common criticisms of complementary health is that it mainly treats the, “worried well.” While to some extent this is true, there are also many who find regular massage, osteopathy or other therapies something that helps prevent them from needing to see their GP or hospital doctor. This is why massage is used so much by sports women and men ranging from gymnastics to soccer and rugby. Others have massage and aromatherapy for their mental health.
That is not to say that massage, aromatherapy and other complementary therapies can not help after there is a problem but how much better to prevent a problem reaching the stage of needing medical intervention? Almost inevitably this is a far better course of action.
So if you want to see how an aromatherapy massage can help you either stay healthy or regain health, why not contact me on
